Guard contract evaluation / reduction. At my site in MD we eliminated one 24 x 7 x 52 guard position and reduced our annual costa by $370,000. I encourage the President to review and scrutiniz the guard force hours at all federal sites. Then have the resolve to eliminate all excess, and save big money instantly. This is an instant win, to help the gov't budget woes.

Allow staff to schedule travel through any source. As long as policy is followed, utilizing multi-search travel websites can greatly save on travel costs (e.g. hotels, airfare, rental cars).
Allow new job applicants to interview via the internet through a webcam. Job interviews can be very expensive, not only for the applicant but also for the Federal Government. Utilizing a webcam can still provide interviewers with a face to face interaction. And, it would allow access to very qualified applicants from remote areas that would not be able to afford a plane flight.
Allow applicants from anywhere to be able to interview from anywhere! Use the internet to connect interviewers and interviewees face to face with a simple webcam. This would allow for someone in Alaska to interview for a job in Washington DC. This would save travel costs and give us a wider applicant pool.
Establish a confidential incentive program to pay individuals who inform on employers/employees violating employment laws that ultimately leads to a conviction.
